Come At Me, Sarasota: Aaron Jaco of Uppercut Boxing

by: Nick Friedman Managing Editor of Arts and Culture

Earlier this month, Aaron Jaco and China Smith announced their new collaborative boxing event, "Making History: Friday Night Fights."

Friday, April 3 at Robarts Arena, Jaco and Smith will both fight in World Boxing Federation-sanctioned title bouts in this one-night televised event designed to showcase local talent and put Sarasota on the map in the professional boxing world.


Last week, Jaco invited Alex to step into his boxing gym, Uppercut Fitness, to see if he had what it takes to train alongside him as he prepares to fight for the super middleweight title.

So Alex channeled his best Robert Deniro, wrapped his hands and set out to show Jaco how he earned the nickname "Brown Sugar" in the latest edition of "Come At Me, Sarasota."


Friday Night Fights — takes place at 6:30 p.m. Friday, April 3 at Robarts Arena. $25 to $125.
